  • About Me:
    Just another surfrat searching endlessly for that 50 lb bass.
  • Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):
    Besides fishing and hunting, if it is outside chances are I like it.
  • What I do for a living:
    House husband. LMAO. Seriously, I don't work anymore. 7 lower back operations forced me into early retirement. I was a glazer for almost 35 years. Glass, not donuts!

  1. Interested but it would have to be shipped.
  2. Thanks for letting me know. I will check back in a day or so. I have to do a little more research on the towing capacity anyway. Mike
  3. Pleased to say that my rods arrived at the same airport I did and with no damage! Yahoo. Look out Stripers!
  4. Towing capacity?
  5. I would be very interested in this also. I live in Florida but I am up in Connecticut and Rhode Island for the next 10 days.
  6. That is killer!
  7. Let’s see how it is at the other end. I have two custom Rod Geeks and a SaltX 9’6. I will let you know.
  8. So there was absolutely no problem at Southwest this morning. My 3” x 88” rod tube was checked through without a second glance.
  9. I think rigged eels would work way better with a clip then live ones. And then there is the problem of the clip fitting through the hook eye sometimes.
  10. I tried. Got too many eel balls. Way easier and better to just tied directly. Only takes a half a minute. My 2 cents.
  11. I am heading up to RI from Florida tomorrow. Southwest. They said up to 3” diameter and up to 91” before oversized. We will see. I have 3 nine footers packed. They are all 70/30 split. My tube is 3” and 87” long. I will let you know.
  12. Interested in any trades?
  13. One of my retired displays. The Goo Goo man slims were never fished. Given to me by Glenn years ago when he was just starting. The Big Rock and Fish On 8 both caught 40lb+. The spook and Cap’n Dons were given to me by Don just weeks before he passed. I can’t fish them. The Tattoo was from Kevin (1dozenraw) and will never be fished. The Boone needle caught my 1st 40lb . The picture is my father when he was a kid and if you look close the reel on that rod is the real on the shelf in that picture. I will post some beat up retired ones later today.
  14. Sure. I’ll get PP out later tonight. Thanks
